This is not about politics!! Can’t you refrain from making someone else’s pain worse for one goddam second or shut your trap about something that you clearly no absolutely nothing about? This woman writes a vulnerable piece about what it was like to have her own abuse sneered at and you have to jump in and show her how “wrong” she is? Is that what your parents taught you, to kick people when they are down? What a poor excuse for a human being!

Edit: Until you demonstrate a working knowledge of the neurobiology of trauma; the social systems in place (both now and in the past) that discourage victims from coming forward; an understanding of what the very particular dynamics are for an adult women to make a false accusation (only certain types of people do that under very specific conditions), then maybe you will have some standing to talk about the particulars of the Kavanaugh case or to weigh in on this topic at all. Read all of the links in the article I posted to educate yourself.

Oh, and while you’re at it, read up on what a serial liar Brett Kavanaugh has been for most of his career, but he’s not really what any of this is about. It’s about further attacking and traumatizing victims, which is something only assholes do.

And no, I will no be responding to your inevitable “rebuttal.”
